Demonstration or Tour


Following the lecture program on October 13th, the UC Davis Inter-Collegiate Polo Team, coached by Michael O’Farrell, will give a demonstration that will include history, principles and rules, use of the mallet, horsemanship, as well as an exhibition match. This will be presented at the Animal Science Horse Barn Arena. Alternatively, a tour of the VMTH is available.
